The Pistons will host the 23-13 New Orleans Hornets tonight at the Palace to try to snap their current 4 game losing streak. The Pistons have not lost five games in a row in five years, so a loss tonight against the Hornets will just add another black eye to what’s been going on with the team lately.
Will Maxiell get some time? We sure hope so, especially when he’s posted DNP’s in the last couple of games and when he has gotten some playing time he’s lucky if he reaches double digit minutes. You know things are bad when Pistons fans and Maxiell are pissed.
“It’s coming to a point in my career where it’s getting old to me,” Maxiell said. “I’m coming up on my fourth year already.
“It’s getting to the point where I would like some consistency and see where it leads.” Via The Detroit Free Press
Hey Coach Curry….this is what Jason does to pesky Hornets!!!! You remember it don’t you? You were an ASSistant coach then, now look at you.
And if you’re wondering The Pistons are currently 9 games back of the first place Cleveland Cavaliers. Doesn’t that just make every Pistons fan want to scream?
Good News: New Orleans has dropped three in a row and seven of eight games over the last four seasons to the Pistons, losing by an average of 14.3 points.
Bad News: Small ball, the lack of a rotation, rebounding, DNP’s and dare I say MC.
